Manu LeComte Leaves The U, Transfers to Baylor


Once again, the Baylor Bears continue to be a staple in Big 12 college basketball. Per ESPN’s Jeff Borzello, guard Manu LeComte will transfer from the University of Miami to Baylor.

Hailing from Belgium, the 5-foot-11, 170 pound LeComte averaged 7.9 points per game his sophomore season. He shot 43 percent from the field and 45.6 percent from downtown, establishing himself as an elite shooter on a Hurricanes squad that went 25-13 (10-8 ACC) last season before losing in overtime to the Stanford Cardinal in the NIT Championship Game.

In that particular game, LeComte grabbed just one rebound in five minutes of play despite averaging 22.4 minutes for the season.

He won’t be on the court for Baylor next year, due to NCAA transfer rules, but could make an immediate impact on the offensive end in head coach Scott Drew’s system beginning in 2016. With his offensive skillset, there’s no denying that Baylor will continue to make a lot of noise in the Big 12.

The Bears went 24-10 (11-7 Big 12) in 2014-15, making the NCAA tournament as a No. 3 seed before suffering a shocking upset loss to No. 14 Georgia State in the Round of 64.
